    These chocolate/peanut butter bars are reminiscent of buckeye candies.

    Peanut Butter Brownie Bars

    Brownie Ingredients:
    1 cup Butter
    4 (1-ounce each) squares unsweetened baking chocolate
    2 cups granulated sugar
    4 large eggs
    1 cup all-purpose flour

    Filling Ingredients:
    1 cup creamy peanut butter
    1/2 cup Butter, softened
    3 cups powdered sugar
    1/3 cup milk

    Drizzle Ingredients:
    1/3 cup semi-sweet real chocolate chips (We recommend NESTLE TOLL
    HOUSE Morsels)
    1 teaspoon vegetable shortening

    Heat oven to 350 F. Melt 1 cup butter and baking chocolate in 1-quart saucepan over
    low heat, stirring constantly, until smooth (2 to 3 minutes). Set aside. Combine
    sugar and eggs in large mixer bowl; beat until thick and lemon-colored (1 to 2
    minutes). Add flour and melted chocolate mixture; beat until well mixed (1 to 2
    minutes). Pour into 15 x 10 x 1-inch jelly roll pan. Bake for 24 to 28 minutes until
    brownie is set. Cool completely. Combine peanut butter and 1/2 cup butter in medium
    mixer bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy (1 to 2 minutes).
    Add powdered sugar and milk;reduce speed to low. Beat until well mixed (1 to 2
    minutes). Spread over cooled brownie layer. Cover; refrigerate until firm (1 hour).
    Melt drizzle ingredients in 1-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly,
    until smooth (1 to 2 minutes). Drizzle mixture over peanut butter layer. Refrigerate
